The family of Khuram Shaikh, the Briton murdered in Sri Lanka in 2011, said today's sentencing of Mr Shaikh's killers is "a symbolic moment."
"Those who killed my brother have been punished and are now behind bars for a long time," said the victim's elder brother Nasser Shaikh.
Today, the country has done what many people hoped and prayed for. Those who killed my brother have been punished and are now behind bars for a long time. Our campaign was not only about justice, but to bring awareness of the wonderful work my brother did around the world, working in humanitarian aid. He is a true inspiration for many and we hope his legacy continues with those he left behind.
The 32-year old Red Cross worker from Rochdale was murdered at a southern tourist resort on Christmas Day 2011.
